The devel's are in the details

"This isn't a grand bargain. For that, we need a complete rethinking of government's approach to helping the most vulnerable, and a complete rethinking of government's approach to health care. But right now, we need to find common ground. We need to open the federal government. We need to pay our bills today—and make sure we can pay our bills tomorrow. So let's negotiate an agreement to make modest reforms to entitlement programs and the tax code."

Incredible! Another Republican that gets it! And his party's nominee for VP no less!

Entitlement programs are things like Social Security and Medicare. So, what is he proposing? Cutting the benefits, raising the retirement age?

And what kind of 'modest reforms' to the tax code is he proposing? I have never heard a republican say let's raise taxes, have you.

He may have some good ideas, but right now, it's like him saying, "we need to put Americans back to work." Sounds good, but meaningless without the details.
